An exploration of raw textures, techniques, opening the senses - experiencing softness

This immersive workshop is an invitation to disconnect from the ordinary and reconnect with your creativity, intuition, natural elements and senses that go beyond the surface. Encouraging you to explore, experiment, and delve into the world of clay with a newfound appreciation for the beauty in every imperfection

We will explore the varieties of making very special candle holders, inspired and shaped together with natural elements. Just in time for candle season to open its doors. 

Creating a candle holder as a companion for your rituals is a profound and meaningful endeavour that adds an extra layer of significance to your practice. Whether you're engaging in meditation, self-care routines, spiritual ceremonies, or moments of reflection, making a personalised candle holder can enhance your experience in several ways.

Allow during this workshop your intuition to guide your hands, creating a piece that resonates with your inner self. A journey of self-expression. With every curve you shape and every texture you imprint, you're weaving a narrative that speaks to your individuality and connection to nature.

The experience

Textures That Tell Stories

Delve into the world of textures that are more than just visual aesthetics. Feel the subtle ridges and gentle curves beneath your fingertips, as they narrate tales of natural elements and organic growth. From the smoothness of river stones to the rustic charm of tree bark, discover how textures can evoke emotions and memories.

Techniques that Transform
During this workshop I will guide you through an array of handbuilding techniques, allowing you to feel and transform clay into functional art. Learn to shape, coil, and carve as you infuse your candle holder with your artistic expression. Each technique tells a story, turning clay into a canvas of creativity.
Opening the Senses
Step out of your head and into a realm of feeling and intuition.  Engage in a sensory journey with clay – feel its coolness against your palms as you shape it through the ancient art of handbuilding. Embrace the tactile connection and savor the lingering scent of earthiness. 
Experiencing Softness
Softness isn't just a physical attribute; it's an emotion that resonates. As you create, let the softness of clay mirror the tenderness within you. Watch as the rigidity of raw material transforms into gentle curves, reminding us of the power of transformation and growth.
Elements of Earth

Just as nature thrives with variations and asymmetry, we will learn to cherish imperfections as a sources of beauty. Through guided exercises, you'll explore how irregularities can lend character and depth to your creations. The elements around us become our teachers. Leaves, rocks, and organic patterns guide our hands, imprinting unique textures onto our clay pieces.

Creating with Intention
By embracing imperfections, we embrace authenticity. Each piece becomes a reflection of our personal journey, mirroring life's beauty in all its diverse forms.
